deals, joey, how much leeway do they have to come up with this stuff? >> generally doug and i love these sentences. why? it keeps our clients out of jail. usually what happens, rick, is that a judge will get the consent of the particular defendant, and as a result of that, you are waiving your right. if a judge says, take your wife out to dinner as opposed to arguing with her and as opposed to discourse and fights, i will say, fine, your honor. that's in lieu of a year in jail. judges often times met out other sentences that are alternative sentences and are a bit creative, but they get the consent. in this particular case the judge goes a little too far when he says, you know what, you are not an appropriate caregiver for the children. do not have anymore children for 13 years which in affect is a life sentence based on the age of the person having these children. and so therefore in this case they went too far. >> final word on these creative sentences that judges sometimes hand down. are they ever a deterrent? >> it is funny.
